Salam, I have bought books long time but did not use them at all, I asked syed sistani office that if I need to pay khums on these books and they said yes. 
 

my question is that I do not know the price of these books, and when I google them I cannot find these price. 

 

will it be a sin if I do not pay khums on these books and gave up these book to mosque or book store as donation?

Salam gave up books to mosque or library or book store for free as  donation is not a sin but if book store has given you profit from selling books then you must pay khums of it.

You still have to pay khums on it.

Personally I would check the current market value of the book or similar books. Do you remember how much you bought them for? I would do my best to somehow estimate the current value and then pay khums on that. 

If you would like to ask a scholar for the ruling then ask your question at Sistani.org again or download the Ask Those Who Know app and ask the scholars over there (they respond quick too).
